X-Rated

No, not me or my blog - it's my quilt. LOL

The additional background fabric arrived this week - woohoo! And, now it's done! This pattern is by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co and is called X-Rated (it's a Schnibbles pattern). The pattern is actually for a 31" x 31" quilt requiring two charm packs. I wanted a larger quilt so I used a Civil War Crossing Jelly Roll (there are 4 charm packs in a jelly roll). I was a little sad to see this flimsy finished because I really enjoyed working on it.

Thanks for stopping by to visit with me - come again soon!

In Friendship!

OMG! I lvoe it! Now this block would make a fun swap. But darn, you made one now already. I love the fabrics and the pattern! Hmmmm, I have a that Paisly line FQ bundle - this might work well for that..... Hmmmmm. How big is one X block?

Beth said...

Very pretty! I have that pattern but I haven't made the quilt yet. That's a good idea making it bigger, since it's such a cool pattern.

Love it!

Carrie said...

That is SO cute! I want one... I want THAT one! Since you enjoyed making this one so much, I think I would be doing you a huge favor by letting you make another one! In fact, you could even make it bigger... I think I have fat quarters you could use... and you know I have more of that background fabric! Yes, that's it, what a grand idea I've had! :)

Gorgeous quilt and excellent job, Miss Cleo.

Judy said...

Well since I missed post before...here I am!!LOL! I like this pattern a lot. I have a smaller Lori Smith version of this plus sign quilt that I might make into a bit larger version. Very cute design!

Glad you found the fabric!

Cheryl said...

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Just my type of quilt - simple design and lots of different fabrics. Love it.

Ginger Patches said...

It turned out beautiful!!! So what is the finished size? I may have to enlarge some of my schnibbles, great idea :)

Julia said...

You were lucky to find the fabric! It's looking good.
I had the same thing happen to me, but i was not as lucky to find more fabric...in the end my quilt still finished up beautifully..

Ginny said...

Love the colors in this quilt!

quiltdolls said...

i just bought the x-rated pattern this weekend because I loved your quilt. What did you use for background fabric was it just muslin or print or fabric from the jelly roll collection?
I am going to use a kansas trouble jelly roll.

Thanks Kim

Oh my I absolutely adore this. You should be so proud!!!

quiltdolls said...

hi it's kim again.

I decided to make this quilt out of jo morton fabrics. I have 2 boxes & need to use them up. I love her fabrics & I want something for my bed. What size was your quilt & how much background did you get?

Thanks for the help
